OPINION POLL – More readers weigh in on Aboriginal rights

We have received many responses to our poll question concerning Aboriginal rights over the development of their lands. To answer our critics, yes the question was oversimplified and the lack of definition for “their lands” was intentional. We were attempting to allow our readers to consider their own definitions rather than tie them down to our definition, which may not have been inclusive.
